Green European Foundation hosted a debate in Poland about the potential impact of Brexit, with the support of Fundacja Strefa Zieleni.
Brexit will have a huge impact on the UK and EU economies and on virtually every area of policy, which increases the need for public discussion of that impact and the choices that will have to be made to deal with it. Beyond that, it calls into question the coherence and effectiveness of the EU as a polity, and as a vehicle for the Green movement. Greens are committed to the belief that European countries can make the transition to sustainability more quickly as a coordinated polity (the EU) than as individual states or societies but this assumption may need to be re-examined.
The event is a part of the ongoing transnational project “The potential impact of Brexit on the prospects for a Green transition in Europe” which attempts to support the much-needed public discussion of Brexit’s impact on individual Member States, as well as on the EU level, while exploring what this means for the Green movements’ endeavour in the transition to sustainability.
